" A wealth of information..."

"1169 And Counting is a wealth of information on our Republican past and present , and demonstrates how the Irish political landscape , like that of any nation, will never be a black and white issue..."

On January 21st , 1919 , the First Dáil Éireann met in the Mansion House, Dublin.

On Tuesday , January 20 , 2009 , Republican Sinn Féin will host a lecture by Ruairí Ó Brádaigh to commemorate the anniversary. Republicanism is currently under threat from revisionist historians , politicians and the media so it is imperative we bring the truth to the people. It is through people like you that we can do this. We hope to see you on Tuesday night , January 20th 2009 at 7.30pm in Wynn's Hotel in Dublin City Centre. All Welcome!
